Nautical Fun & Bonus Deals!!!

It’s summer and as it heats up that means the beach and pool time. And since my summer memories always include Lake Michigan, when I ran across these memo pads I couldn’t resist picking up a few to make little gifts for some friends along with one for myself of course.

Red, white and blue – nautical colors and perfect for these little note pads. I let the note pads dictate which stamp sets I used. And the images went perfectly with the Open Sea  and the Sea Street stamp sets.

Open Sea Memo Pad Holder

And check out this one that I made for my friend Janie who deserves a bit of pampering lately. I hope it will remind her of some fond memories from her trip to New England last year.

What do you think? Fun right? I’m hoping my friends will like them.

Weekly Deals June 30 2015 1

Weekly Deals June 30 2015 2

Right now is the perfect time to enjoy more savings, because June 30–August 3,  there are MORE items in the Clearance Rack and Weekly Deals. That means you can save up to 30% on even more Weekly Deals, or up to 60% on extra items in the Clearance Rack. You’ll want to hurry though, because Weekly Deals discounts are available in limited quantities before the items return to retail prices.

On a personal note, I hope you’ll bear with me and my technology issues. It’s been a rough couple of days trying to get things done on my blog. Yesterday the whole area was down most of the day before we could get the internet back. And for now I’m working on my blog from my daughters computer which makes things a bit more challenging to post since Kaitlin’s system is so different from mine. 🙂 Everything else of course is normal but the blog is a bit tricky for me. Old dog….new tricks you get the idea. LOL

Easter Chick Triangle Box

Can you believe Easter is in less than two weeks away? Where has March gone to? And I just realized I had not shared this cute little Easter treat with you like I thought I had.

triangle box chick

Cute huh? This is a basic triangle box and they are so easy to make. I’m so glad that Terri shared this cute little guy during our shoebox swap at the retreat. I think this little chick would bring a smile to anyone’s face. How about you?

I’ve created a how to video for the Triangle Box HERE. So you’ll want to check it out. And to make this cute little guy you’ll simply start with a piece of card stock that is 5″ x 2 1/2″. (You can adjust the measurements easily once you watch the video.)

A Note about Comments

Some of you may have noticed that you now have to go through an extra step to leave a comment – one of those boxes where you have to type in what is shown.

Due to an massive attack  of robot spammers I have needed to add this new filter this past week. Unfortunately, with the volume of the spam coming in it was taking time away from what I love sharing with you.

If you’ve left a comment with me in the past you shouldn’t need to go through this step. However, if you have never left a comment before this should be a one time thing – after that (and  I’ve approved your comment) you should be recognized and not have to complete this step in the future. This is part of the reason the comment section asks for your name and email information.

Hopefully this will resolve itself very quickly and we can go back to the old way – but until then I wanted to thank you for bearing with me – I appreciate hearing your comments and really look forward to hearing from you. So I hope this doesn’t discourage anyone from posting comments on my blog.

Stocking Builder Punch

Can you believe Christmas is tomorrow? I’m still putting finishing touches on gift items that I have stamped for family and friends. I got side tracked playing with my new preorder items for the Occasions Mini that goes live January 4th. Want an Occasions Mini Catalog and haven’t received one yet because your not on my mailing list? Click HERE to get your copy or email me at jakmerck@windstream with your Name, Address, and Phone Number and I’ll be happy to put you on my list.

I recently got this beautiful card from one of my team members, Cindy. It showcases our Stocking Builder Punch from the Holiday Mini Catalog. Did you know that you can only get the Stocking Builder Punch while supplies last? Stampin Up! has announced they will not be carrying over this punch into our Idea Book & Catalog next summer. So if you’ve had your eye on it – don’t delay and get yours before it’s gone.

Stocking Builder Punch

And here is a little gift I received from Cindy. Isn’t it too cute?

Snowman Soup

The little box behind the snowman made with our Top Note Die holds three cocoa packets. I thought it was clever the way she used our 1×8 Cello Bags from the Holiday Mini Catalog to hold the marshmallows for each packet of hot chocolate. And can you guess which punch she made the carrot with? It’s the Petite Pennant Punch, isn’t that clever?
